At the second edition of the exciting International Ice Sculpture Festival, known as Ice Festival, held in Torrejón de Ardoz, Madrid, ten teams of ice sculptors from around the world competed to create stunning frozen masterpieces under the theme “The Wonders of Ice.” world”. This event, organized by Productores de Sonrisas, took place in a tent with extremely cold temperatures, reaching 7 degrees below zero, which allowed the artists to unleash their creativity.

Each team had access to more than 500 blocks of ice, weighing a total of more than 100 tons, and used tools such as chainsaws, chisels and torches to sculpt their creations. The representations included some of the most iconic cities and monuments in the world, such as the New York skyline, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Colosseum in Rome, the Taj Mahal, Elvis in Las Vegas and Japanese pagodas, among others.

The winning team, which took home a cash prize of 10,000 euros, was team 9, consisting of Dominika Jarczok from Poland and Ji Huailong from China. His work, titled “The Sky Over Beijing,” impressed the jury with its beauty and detail. The second prize, worth 7,500 euros, went to the “Eiffel Tower in Paris” by team 4 from France and Poland, while the third prize, worth 5,000 euros, was awarded to the “Kuala Lumpur” creation by team 10 from Malaysia and Thailand. The exhibition of these amazing ice sculptures will be open to the public from November 30 to January 7 at the Parque Mágicas Navidades in Torrejón de Ardoz, offering visitors the opportunity to marvel at these impressive works of ephemeral art.
